We are expanding our business, starting in March, and this will involve a move for our family at some stage this year (I have discussed this here) and lots more farm work for everyone. The Farmer, in particular, is going to be very much under the pump. We will have more land, more staff and more gear. It is very exciting, but just a little daunting at the moment.
I keep looking around this house and thinking of the packing and sorting that needs to be done. Some initial repair work on The New House will need to be done as well. This is complicated by the fact that I have only been in the new house once, for half an hour, last August! Hence I am not quite sure exactly what is going to need to be done, but figure I will find out soon enough...
I am normally fairly motivated and positive, but at the moment I keep looking around at all the jobs and wondering where to start. So today I made myself sit down and take stock. And I have decided just to pick somewhere and start... I made a huge list and I have attempted to break big jobs down into "do able" chunks. Once I get going I will be fine (hopefully).
It reminds me of the saying.
"How do you eat an elephant?"
"One bite at a time."
(Although why anyone would want to eat an elephant is beyond me. Actually, is there anywhere in the world they eat elephants? - Ok, digressing, sorry)

Does everyone feel overwhelmed at the start of a big "project" or job? Or is it just me?
